'I felt like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and all the other fairy-tale princesses, and Pat was my Prince Charming.' Sam Skye Lee had often thought about getting married, but never imagined that her dress would be bright pink with flashing lights and weigh a staggering 20-stone. But then she didn't count on having a gypsy wedding... It's rare for a 'gorger', or non-traveller, to marry into the gypsy community. But after a shocking childhood tragedy, Sam found the comfort she needed from an unxpected source - Patrick and his family of travellers. Gypsy Bride is the heartwarming true story of how an ordinary girl finds herself discovering an extraordinary world. A place where 'grabbing' is a sign a boy fancies you, six-year-olds get spray tans, and christenings, weddings and funerals are jaw-droppingly flamboyant. This love story is more than boy meets girl. It's about a girl who falls in love with a whole race of people and their wonderful ways.

In the England of 1218, King John is dead and his young son is on the throne, guided by the aging William, Marshall of England. All of the vast domains of John’s father on the Continent have been lost and the rebellious barons are held to a fragile truce. It is very much a man’s world. When Elise of Debouchet defi es the step-uncle who has laid claim to her estates and refuses to marry any of the men he chooses, he gives her an ultimatum. “You do not need your eyes to speak the vows or get an heir. You will do as I say or I will have your eyes put out.” Elise says she would rather marry any man than the one before her. Her uncle counters with, “The next man through the gate will be your husband, be he prince or serf.” Elise agrees because she doesn’t want to be blinded. Her uncle has taken her mother and younger sister hostage and she needs time to fi nd some clue as to where he holds them. When Louis of Kirkfi eld, a Romani merchant, walks over the bridge and through the gate of the closest castle, his only thought is to buy a horse to replace his lame packhorse. He is overwhelmed by four brawny men and badly beaten, then forced to say vows before a priest. He and his new bride are thrown into a tower room. The door is barred against escape. Louis does escape and comes back with an army. But Elise’s mother and sister cannot be located and they follow the trail to France and her grandmother. The more they know, the more they fi nd out, the bigger the scheme becomes and they are now searching for a double agent, a money lender, a lawyer and an assassin. The wealthy young bride and her gypsy must follow the trails and learn to work together to make their marriage work and therein lies the tale.

When Sir Clay of York gambles with a gypsy named Luca, he doesn't expect to lose his coins as well as his pride due to the gypsy's cheating ways. He doesn't expect to lose his daughter, Rosie, in the mix either. While he has no love for Rosie with her pale skin, white hair, and red eyes, he detests that he has been bested by the hated gypsies and he vows revenge. He will give Luca his daughter, but he will find a way to get her back and get even with the gypsies at the same time. The gypsy, Luca, needs a wife after his father stole his betrothed from him years earlier and so he tells the Englishman, "Bring your daughter to me one week from now." In the gypsy world, gypsies marry gypsies, and now Luca must face the consequences of his bet. After having been imprisoned and beaten in her own home, Rosie is both thrilled and frightened when she hears that she is to be wed. Though she knows nothing of this man, she never dreamed that she would ever be allowed to leave her father's house. When she asks about her wedding and the man who is to be her husband, Rosie's father refuses to tell her anything. Then she realizes something horrible. Her betrothed knows nothing of her strangeness. Excerpt: He's a gypsy. Father married me to a gypsy. They were thieves, thieves who stole from hard working people and traveled around England in carriages. Rosie had heard that gypsies were ruffians and oftentimes beat their wives and had many wicked children who were just like their parents. And that was who she would marry. She had been fearful before, when she figured out that her father had not told her husband-to-be about her strangeness, but that was nothing like the fear she felt now. Luca would probably beat her and lock her away. Either that or he would push himself upon her and breed wicked, evil children. As Luca approached the camp, he felt Rosie's trembling and found himself pitying her. She isn't so bad, he thought, peering at her. Luca's hand was rough and callused, like sandpaper. What will these hands feel like touching my breasts, my stomach, or even my... She met Luca's eyes and they appeared to be smoldering. "Shall we go to bed?" he asked, stroking her cheek with one of his rough hands. Rosie nodded. "Your virtue is still intact," he said. "Has no one explained to you what will happen when you mate with a man for the first time?" Rosie shook her head and Luca's eyes darkened. ****** Rosie heard Luca climb into the back of the house wagon and head toward her on all fours. He began to undo his shirt, and Rosie watched him with interest as he revealed tan, hard flesh below. She smiled and he leaned down and kissed her gently. His lips were probing and tender, yet she felt electricity fill her body at his warmth. As Luca continued to kiss her, he reached downward and touched the sensitive area at her hip. She moaned and squirmed at his touch, and he chuckled against her lips, filling her with electricity. She reached down, fingering the top of his undergarments. She was curious and yet she had never touched him. Luca broke the kiss and gazed at her with a heated stare as her hand lingered. "Is it okay if I?..." But she was too embarrassed to finish the sentence. "Is it okay if you what?" Luca asked. Rosie's cheeks grew hot at the thought of what she wanted. "Is it okay if I touch you?" she asked, knowing that this was the root of his carnal pleasure.

Now that the political and economic plight of European Roma and the popularity of their music are objects of international attention, Romani Routes provides a timely and insightful view into Romani communities both in their home countries and in the diaspora. Over the past two decades, a steady stream of recordings, videos, feature films, festivals, and concerts has presented the music of Balkan Gypsies, or Roma, to Western audiences, who have greeted them with exceptional enthusiasm. Yet, as author Carol Silverman notes, Roma are revered as musicians and reviled as people. In this book, Silverman introduces readers to the people and cultures who produce this music, offering a sensitive and incisive analysis of how Romani musicians address the challenges of discrimination. Focusing on southeastern Europe then moving to the diaspora, her book examines the music within Romani communities, the lives and careers of outstanding musicians, and the marketing of music in the electronic media and "world music" concert circuit. Silverman touches on the way that the Roma exemplify many qualities--adaptability, cultural hybridity, transnationalism--that are taken to characterize late modern experience. And rather than just celebrating these qualities, she presents the musicians as complicated, pragmatic individuals who work creatively within the many constraints that inform their lives.

From the USA TODAY bestselling author. "I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find." —Mary Balogh, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of ONLY ENCHANTING Educated and brilliant, classics scholar Catherine Hartland has yet to meet a man who takes her intellect seriously or views the fairer sex as anything but mere playthings. Certainly the Marquis of Rutherton is no exception. But, as much as her head demands she ignore his bold, sensual gaze, his beautifully sculpted features, and his clear intent to kiss her senseless, have her heart dictating otherwise. Cynical and weary of matchmaking games, the Marquis is stunned by his own reaction to a woman so different from the docile, biddable beauties he much prefers. Catherine might be the only woman in London immune to his considerable charms, but that immunity convinces him she is the only woman he has to have. And as passion makes Catherine a prisoner of her own desires, she knows the time has come to teach this arrogant gentleman a lesson in the true meaning of love.
